  div.sect > p { margin-top:0pt ...

you'll probably have to generate an XSLT style sheet which matches
on p[ancestor::div[class='sect']], and I'm sure it gets messy soon.

Many DAU programs use forms and wizards for specifying the presentational
properties anyway, I don't see how it matters whether you use CSS syntax
or XML in this case.
